WHAT IS COLON HYDROTHERAPY?
Colon Hydrotherapy, also known as Colonic Irrigation is a gentle internal bath that helps cleanse the colon of toxins, gas, mucoprotein build up and accumulated faecal matter caused by stress, inadequate diet and other factors associated with our modern busy lifestyle.
Many people now suffer from frequent bouts of constipation, a feeling of being run down and a general lethargy when doing the common and everyday tasks in life
Through a combination of filtered water gently placed into and then gradually pulsated through the colon Colonic Hydrotherapy works to re-hydrate the colon, soften the stools and to remove the toxins and faecal matter adhering to the wall of the bowel. Additionally, the water pulsations also help to strengthen the bowel and encourage better long term peristaltic (wave like contraction) action and increasing the efficiency of ongoing bowel movements
The major reported benefits of Colonic Hydrotherapy include an increased sense of wellbeing and cleanliness, heightened state of mental alertness, renewed energy, improved digestion, decreased bloating and a drop in the frequency of constipation.
These benefits are in addition to the primary purpose of Colon Hydrotherapy which is to rid the body of unwanted toxins and faecal material.
